The Role of CCIOs in Mental Health
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
This one day workshop jointly organised by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and eHealth insider will examine the value and potential development of the new Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO) role in mental health. In 2011 EHI ran a national campaign calling for the appointment of local clinical information leaders to improve the use of information within the NHS, this workshop is part of a programme of events designed to take forward that objective.

When & Where
CCIO Leaders Network
The CCIO Leaders Network is a multi-platform discussion and events programme designed to promote and develop current and future clinical information leaders to support the growing community of CCIOs across the NHS. The network focuses on creating a career ladder for the development of future CCIOs.
The primary goal is to create the beginning of a professional community of support, best practice and knowledge that embeds and spreads the CCIO role within the NHS. The focus is on promoting the case for clinical leadership on IT and information to achieve quality and productivity improvements
The CCIO Leaders Network builds upon the success of the EHI CCIO campaign launched in July 2011, which encouraged every NHS organisation to consider appointing a chief clinical information officer to bridge the gap between doctors and nurses and the technologists installing and running IT in hospitals and the community. Supported by the British Computer Society and the Royal College of Physicians, the campaign attracted support from the majority of Royal Colleges; the BMA and NHS Confederation; more than forty health IT firms and dozens of individuals.
